Do you have a toothache? We can help. A root canal is a tooth-saving procedure performed to give our patients back their healthy smiles.

If you’re experiencing swelling or pain from a dental infection, call or visit us today. Dr. Moon and the Precision Dental Partners team are experts in restorative dental care. We are proud to restore teeth and save smiles with gentle, effective root canal treatment.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a restorative procedure. We perform root canals to repair teeth. Dr. Moon recommends root canals to save teeth in cases of:

  • Extensive tooth decay
  • Tooth infections
  • Severe dental injury

When teeth become severely damaged or infected, the material inside the tooth can break down and die. This material is called the dental pulp. The dental pulp contains the tooth’s nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue. As the pulp breaks down, the infection spreads, causing a painful abscess at the roots of the tooth.

Without treatment, the infection can worsen and spread until the tooth must be removed. Our doctor performs gentle, effective root canal treatment to save your teeth and keep your smile healthy.

Do I Need a Root Canal?

Here are some of the common signs that you may need a root canal:

  • Swelling in your face, jaw, or neck
  • Severe or persistent toothache
  • Drainage in the gums around the tooth
  • Sensitivity to temperature (hot or cold)
  • Sensitivity to pressure
  • Pain when eating or chewing
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth
  • Tender or swollen gums

Are Root Canals Painful?

Not at all. While root canals have a bad reputation, the pain associated with root canals is caused by the infection rather than the treatment. Dr. Moon performs gentle root canals. Our team will do everything we can to make your experience as comfortable, relaxing, and stress-free as possible.

What Can I Expect During a Root Canal?

Root canal treatment is a safe, effective, and simple procedure. Before we begin any procedure, our team will thoroughly explain the diagnosis, the steps of the treatment, and exactly what to expect during the process.

Here is what you can expect:

  • During your appointment, our team will take digital X-rays to determine the extent of dental infection.
  • Next, our dentist will administer a local anesthetic. This will numb your tooth and prevent discomfort. We may also recommend sedation to ensure a completely relaxed and stress-free experience.
  • Once your mouth is numb, our dentist will create a small opening to remove the dental pulp.
  • Finally, the tooth will be filled and sealed to prevent future infection. If needed, our dentist will place a crown to restore the tooth’s strength.

Do You Take Walk-ins?

Yes, we accept walk-ins. Our team welcomes new and returning patients to visit us for all their dental care needs. For your convenience, we also offer same-day emergency appointments as scheduling permits. Be sure to take advantage of our weekend and evening availability.

Do You Accept Insurance?

Yes, we accept most major insurance plans. We also offer affordable financing through our in-house payment plans and CareCredit.
